Wiegmann Associates completes HVAC Work for New St. Charles County Emergency Operations Center

in Companies/News

Wiegmann Associates has completed work on the St. Charles County Emergency Management’s new $20 million Emergency Operations Center in O’Fallon, MO. The new facility consolidates all of the county’s emergency resources under one roof and speeds response time. Contracting Business magazine awarded Wiegmann Associates a Design/Build award for the project. Wiegmann was the Engineer of Record (EOR) and design/build HVAC mechanical contractor for the project. Brinkmann Constructors was the general contractor.

The 30,000-square-foot, one-story building houses day-to-day operations of the Department of Emergency Communications, St. Charles County Police Department’s Division of Emergency Management and a 1,400-square-foot data center for county information technology operations and the county-wide emergency radio communications system.

Wiegmann’s scope of work included the design and installation of heating and cooling infrastructure for the facility and the mission-critical data center. Wiegmann built 100% redundancy into the HVAC systems and data center to ensure uninterrupted operation under any conditions.  Because the facility must operate during natural disasters and terrorist threats, it was built to comply with ICC500, the design and construction standard for storm shelters.

A Building Automation System (BAS) prioritizes cooling for critical areas. If building temperatures rise above a set point due to multiple equipment failures, the BAS system would start to cut off airflow to non-critical areas so critical areas such as the data center remained conditioned.

The HVAC system also provides tight humidity control to protect evidence housed in a 6,200-square-foot addition to the adjacent St. Charles County Police Department. A 6,300-square-foot addition to the adjacent fleet storage building is being used for maintenance and storage of the County’s Emergency’s vehicles and equipment.

This was the first time St. Charles County has engaged in the design/build process.  All other County buildings have been constructed with the design/bid/build process.

St. Charles County Emergency Management maintains the St. Charles County Emergency Operations Center (EOC), which coordinates with the cities within St. Charles County, as well as neighboring jurisdictions and state and federal agencies during emergency activations.

Wiegmann Wins Design/Build Award For HVAC & Refrigeration Project For $18 Million Hoffman Beverage In Chesapeake, Va

in Companies/News

Wiegmann Associates won a Contracting Business Design/Build award for their work on the $18 million expansion of Hoffman Beverage in Chesapeake, Virginia. The design/build HVAC, refrigeration and building automation system (BAS) controls project included the expansion and renovation of the beer distributor’s 217,392-square-foot beverage distribution center and office. The general contractor was ARCO Beverage Group.

Wiegmann was challenged to design an effective HVAC system for several very diverse areas of the Hoffman Beverage facility, ranging from 26,000 square feet of office space to a controlled environment warehouse (CEW) with 32-foot ceilings and a 32,000-square-foot low-temperature refrigeration draught cooler.

Wiegmann engineered an energy-efficient HVAC and BAS system that reliably maintains the temperatures of beverage product as they move through several indoor environments at the facility. Beer distributors are required to monitor and report all temperatures in warehouse and draught cooler spaces.

Wiegmann carefully engineered and planned this three-phase project to enable the beverage distribution facility to continue operating with minimal downtime during construction. The existing refrigeration units had to be relocated twice – first moved within the existing building to allow for construction of the new warehouse, then later relocated to the roof of the new warehouse.

Phase 1 included a 115,440-square-foot expansion of the controlled environment warehouse (CEW) and new 32,000-square-foot warehouse. Phase 2 of the project involved the expansion and renovation of existing office space. During Phase 3, the existing 81,237-square-foot warehouse was renovated and additional new office space was constructed.

Hoffman Beverage is a large distributor of beer and non-alcoholic products in the Hampton Roads region of Virginia, with 5.2 million in case volume and $100 million in annual sales.
